I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free. Psalm 119:32
This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’ Matthew 3:3
This is who I want to be in Christ.
The one running on a path headed straight for God with my friends following close behind.
Running barefoot in the cool grass, with the wind caressing my face.
My heart free, pursuing my love, like a child chasing after fireflies.
Thrilled at capturing the understanding in his word.
Happy to be included in his plans.
Grateful to be picked for the winning team.
Smiling as he whispers my name.
Trusting as he assigns me my position in the game.
Confident that he has equipped me with all I need to play fair.
Speaking higher thoughts that bless those listening.
Bursting with gleeful songs of praise from the bottom of my heart and soul.
